Featured Review

Current Employee - Program Director

I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The exceptional professionalism, integrity and highly collaborative hiring staff. As a former Amgen employee, I knew I would receive professional hiring staff and I definitely was treated with high... quality professionalism and the Amgen Talent Acquisition Team went above and beyond to support me through the re-hiring process. I'm thrilled to be an Amgen employee again!

Cons

I don't have any cons. I have been in the industry for 22 years and Amgen is indeed exceptional.

Former Employee - Senior Coordinator

I worked at Shire full-time for less than a year

Pros

It is a nice place to work with good environment, great benefits

Cons

As a big company it has too many levels in hierarchy
